4:21 pm
northwest wind. at least the first half of the day should really warm up and then the sea breeze kicks in. and the southeast wind is an ocean breeze all day on sunday so sunday will be cooler there, just a little cooler in the poconos with a chance of some thunderstorms sunday afternoon there. for the rest of the night tonight we have just those isolated evening storms. 77 degrees for the low temperature in philadelphia. a hot day but not quite as hot or humid as today. highs around 90 degrees. and the seven-day forecast 85 on sunday. if we get any storms they're generally at night. better chance monday and next week could be kind of stormy, especially toward the end of the week. accused of stealing this iconic phrase. >> watch the tram car, please. >> i'm at the jersey shore where the wild woods are taking legal action against atlantic city today. then the new government study on underaged drinking and why experts now say teenagers are less likely to do it. coming right up on nbc 10 news.

yeah it's going to be a hot night for an outdoor concert. sky force 10 flying over lincoln financial field in south philadelphia. just a couple hours from now, taylor swift will take the stage. it's going to be pretty uncomfortable for the thousands of fans but at least it's a night time concert and not one in the middle of the day where it would be even worse. the sun beating right down on you as the sun angle goes down some of the stadium will block some of that sunlight. it felt like 100 degrees over the last couple of hours. it will probably feel like a mere 95 by 6:00.
4:46 pm
isolated thunderstorms around on the radar. we will show them to you. and the weekend, not quite as hot or humid as what we're seeing today. we have some fair weather clouds over much of the area and there are some places getting some storms now. 94 degrees, that's the hottest so far this season. one degree away from the record and it's west-southwest wind at 16 miles an hour. little bit of relief from the heat in mt. pocono at 83 and in the rain at reading at 84. otherwise, 93 degrees in bensalem 91 in wilmington and glassboro, 90 degrees in millville, 92 in dover. it is pretty hot. just about everywhere but not quite everywhere. avalon, 73. beach haven, 76. that's representative of the entire jersey shore and as tim showed you, on the delaware beaches, having a nice little sea breeze, too. that makes a tremendous difference.
4:47 pm
now, this is going to make a difference, too. a cold front approaching from the north significantly cooler weather behind it. it's going to kind of weaken as it comes into our area but it will at least break up that mid 90 degree stuff and extremely high humidity. there's the isolated thunderstorm. as you can see, really isolated. it's the only one. 5:18, lower providence and 5:41 in montgomery if it continues as its present course. you can see a good bit of lightning here is right over elverson. pottstown's up here. it looks like the core of it may go just to the south of pottstown but you are going to see that lightning and hear that thunder. just some of those isolated showers and storms during the evening hours. it's going to stay very warm otherwise. by tomorrow morning we're near 80 degrees already. but with a northwest wind behind that front that i showed you, we've got drier air coming in.
4:48 pm
so it's going to be less humid. the temperature won't go up as high and you don't see the thunderstorms during the afternoon. so it's going to be pretty sunny and it will feel more comfortable than today. then on sunday we are starting off, look at that temperatures in the 60s. that's a lot of an improvement compared to what we've seen the last couple of mornings. for the rest of the night tonight, just those isolated thunderstorms. 77 degrees in philadelphia 72 north and west during the day tomorrow. a hot day but not as hot or humid. highs near 90. if we hit 90 it's an official heat wave, our first of the season. not likely to get near 90 on sunday. if we have any storms most likely sunday night and especially on monday. chance of some storms on tuesday and wednesday and we could get into kind of a stormy pattern as we head toward the end of the week. lot of moisture in the
